MAGAWEEN: Halloween Spending To Reach Over $9 Billion This Year


The spending numbers for Halloween keep climbing every year, with an increasing number of Americans feeling comfortable enough to shell out a few extra dollars on costumes and candy to enjoy the spook-tivities.

According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), Americans will spend upwards of $9 billion this year on Halloween. In 2016, before President Trump had taken office, Halloween spending had fallen down to just $8.4 billion.

The numbers on individual spending have also slightly increased from 2017, with Americans spending $86.79 per person versus last year’s $86.13.
